No, that's not twinflower (Linnea borealis), the leaves are all wrong.

To me, it looks like some kind of pipsissewa - see the images on this page, especially photos of the leaves and the buds.

The flower is always more important than the leaves, and the twin flower branch led me to believe twin flower. Maybe we should wait until the flower opens. But, I do have wintergreen at my place and the leaves do indeed look like wintergreen.
